From Awful Announcing:
Of course the ESPN schedule is only through July, and that could change, but prepare yourself for a good number of NL Central games this coming season. Here’s the team breakdown….
Mets, Dodgers, Twins, White Sox, Braves- 10
Angels, Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox- 9
Astros, Tigers, Rays- 6
Giants, Brewers- 5
Rangers, Diamondbacks- 4
A’s, Mariners, O’s- 1
Blue Jays, Marlins, Padres, Nationals, Pirates, Reds, Rockies, Royals- 0
I know people cry East Coast Bias!!!! when the Yankees and Red Sox dominate the prime time schedule. Furthermore, I can understand showing compelling teams like the Cubs and Dodgers more often to diversify the schedule. But having the Twins, White Sox, and Braves have more appearances on the schedule than the Yankees and Red Sox seems like poor business. Those are the teams the fans want to see, as evidenced by their league high drawing power on the road, and it seems silly to me to place other teams in those slots to support some sort of fairness. If fairness were the goal, why not show the Pirates or the Royals? There must be something more going on here, possibly some sort of directive from MLB that the networks show more of the other larger market teams. Whatever the reason, hopefully (for those of us that do not have YES), the second half of the ESPN schedule rectifies the situation.
